    exclusive write after read memory access

    foomanchoo

      for a memory location that is accessed by a single thread, is it allowed to do:

       

      old = load_buffer(global_addr);

      store_buffer(new, global_addr); // will be executed before the memory load is finished

       

      and expect old to contain the original value and the memory to contain the new value?
